The nice little room I had at Acadia Hotel was just perfect for me for my 3 night stay in Bar Harbor. Being winter, the town was not only cold, but kind of ghost town-ish and full of "see you in April" signs in the store windows. Even so, my room and the nice people at Acadia and other places I visited (Morning Glory Bakery - the best! Acacia House - yum!) warmed me up, and even on the coldest and snowiest day my room was toasty and welcoming. The hotel is centrally located right by a small green and movie theater (good pizza there!), making it easy to walk everywhere I needed to go. It's a very short walk to the beach path from there down the main road for visitors in warmer weather, so I believe I could recommend it for any season, and would prefer such a place any day to the chain hotels nearer to the shore. During my stay, the staff wasn't always in, but that's understandable given the season. I'm sure that in the tourist season the desk is staffed all the time. This wasn't a problem for me. If you want a good "hotel" price but a bed/breakfast type feel (but not too fancy and without breakfast!), this is your place.
